Gas Station Owner Uses His Store to Help the Homeless

Published

A patron of a Mobil gas station recently witnessed an unbelievable act of compassion and selflessness upon her visit to the gas station in Los Angeles County. While most gas stations turn away homeless people from even using their facilities, the owner of this one opened his heart to those living on the streets.

She reached out to the Good News Network with the hope that the story would be known by many and that the kindness of the owner would be acknowledged. In an interview with the Good News Network, Pilar Love shared what happened during her first visit: “I went to go visit his Mobil station bathroom and the person who was inside the restroom was taking a long time. The owner then came over to me and said, ‘Oh, I think there might be a homeless person in there washing up in the sink.’”

Considering that it was unnatural for establishment owners to allow homeless people to use their facilities, Love curiously asked more questions and it was then that she learned how the owner had been permitting homeless people to clean up in his building, rest, and even get some sleep.

The owner’s revelation took Love by surprised because while he may be doing a good deed, the owner might be harming his business since there is a risk that his paying customers would be turned-off when they see poor people in the gas station.

“Because it’s been raining a lot lately, he had been letting them sleep right at the facilities. I can’t imagine many shop owners would do that – many people so often ignore homelessness and this man is opening up his heart to them,” said Pilar.

When Love told the owner about him having a “heart for the homeless”, the owner shared that his son is serving in the military and that it is unfortunate that veterans with mental illness and homeless people are often overlooked in the United States.

“It just seems really rare to me for someone to be giving the same respect to someone who wasn’t a paying customer… I thought it would be awesome to give him a little bit of acknowledgment cause it’s not always about money,” Love said.
